It’s a sad day in the celebrity world today. Jim Carrey’s girlfriend, who he was dating on and off for years, has taken her own life, according to reports. Cathriona White, who was 28 years old, was found by some of her friends at her place in L.A. on Monday night.
Apparently Cathriona left a suicide note that talked about Jim Carrey and their supposed breakup last week, according to sources to TMZ.com. Police have said she died from a drug overdose – pills were found next to her body.
And in a final and incredibly sad revelation, she shut down her Twitter account on September 24 and released her final tweet which read, “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.” Heartbreaking.
The actor himself, Jim Carrey, has released a statement following his girlfriend’s suicide:
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona. She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”
